Fangs for the Fantasy
Fangs for the Fantasy rated it 4 years ago
This book is probably more sci-fi than what we’ve seen before but it’s different from your average sci-fi as the alien possessors are so free from your many of your usual sci-fi markers That’s my excuse. But I’ll be honest I just wanted to read this series as it was well recommended and I already ...

I've read some great books recently, but this is the one I'll recommend first to anyone who likes to read Science Fiction, Fantasy, or Action/Thriller novels!I actually purchased a physical copy of this book - which is rare because everything I do is digital!Read it!

Rating: 4* of five This isn't a perfect book. It's a first novel. But you know what? First novels this good come along rarely, and first novelists as classy and funny and smart as Chu deserve our support. I bought my paperback copies of this book because I wanted to read 'em. But I bought my Kin...

SUPER FUNNY GUY THIS AUTHOR - look at his witty interview. I MUST read this book!I've just laughed my head off over this tiny bit of excerpt from the book:He didn’t know what was going on or who was talking, but he was so scared right now that he did whatever this voice said. He took the two bottles...

Cross-posted on SoapboxingI don't feel great about this, but I'm going to abandon this book at the halfway mark. I don't think it's bad; I just think it's not for me. The set-up is fun: it's a man who knew too little slash buddy cop scenario involving the origin myth for Scientology. Millions of yea...

Alien stories are always a fun ride, especially when 1) the aliens are unconventional, and 2) their relationship with humankind goes beyond the typical invade them/uplift them dichotomy. Alien stories are even more interesting when they're mixed up in a spy thriller. That being said, the latter isn'...

Review to come. Review will be live on the blog on June 16th, but here it is here! Another winner from Angry Robots publishing house! What a great book! Almost makes you believe that it could all have been true and is STILL true. So many historical figures that Tao has influenced and made fantastic ...

I crave fun books almost as much as I crave coffee every morning (and I can't function without my java, so that is saying something). When a book makes me escape the real world, laugh, thrill at the fantastic situations, leads me on a whirlwind chase and at the end, leaves me wanting more, why that ...

Before you and I existed – in fact, before most people existed – our planet was inhabited by a group of aliens. Unable to exist on our planet in their natural form, the alien race, or Quasing, merged with the bodies of wayward creatures. As time went on, a divide was slowly created between two burge...
